Aardman Films is currently in talks with Sony Pictures. This new announcement comes after a decision to end its relationship with DreamWorks.
The creators of the beloved characters Wallace & Gromit decided to sever their ties with DreamWorks after Flushed Away & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit didn’t do so well in the movie theaters.
A possible new deal with Sony may be on the way, with a three year contract in the work.
A spokeswoman for Sony revealed, “We have been huge fans of Aardman films for a long time and this deal greatly expands Sony’s commitment to animation in the worldwide marketplace.
“Aardman makes movies with lively humor, great stories, and fun distinctive visuals. They have boundless creative energy and a passion for animation that is hard to resist. We couldn’t be more excited about working with the entire Aardman team.”
Aardman co-founder David Sproxton stated, “We know from experience that we create our best work when we do it from our home base here in Bristol, using first class talent from the nation and around the world. It is Aardman’s intention to expand this community to produce more world class animated feature films.”
Any way we can get more Wallace & Gromit, makes me a satisfied woman.
